Love our Markets in Albany

HideAway Hostesses feel blessed to live in Albany where there is so much choice for fresh local foods. At the Albany Farmers Market the REAL FARMERS from their farms come and sell FRESH produce they have grown or reared themselves.

Micro Herbs
This food has travelled just a few kilometres, not thousands. An established top spot to shop for the day to day and for the unexpected and unusual! The quality and range of product EVERY week is enormous - not only every imaginable type of fruit, vegetable and salad vegetable, but also
Organic Beef and Lamb; Free Range Pork, Bacon, Ham; Free Range Chicken; Fish, Rock Lobster, Crab, Yabbies, Honey, Breads, Cow & Goat Yoghurt, Soft Cow & Goat Cheese, Ice-creams, Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Eggs, Jams, Preserves, Plants and Fresh Flowers together with a complementary selection of Organic grown vegetables and much much more. We do our weekly shopping here week, to ensure our guests get the freshest food available but also to support our local farmers by buying LOCAL.

Why is our farmers market so different to the many popping up everywhere?

"Farmers' markets are popping up everywhere. This one is different because it's all about the farmers. It was started by farmers, it's run by farmers," Mr Haines said.
And if you're not a Great Southern farmer selling only what comes from your farm, you won't get a look in. "That's what's made it Australia's best," Mr Haines says.

Albany Farmers Markets are open every Saturday morning from 8am to 12 noon where the local carpark comes alive. Better get there early though, stalls sell out very early.

The Albany Boatshed Markets are on every Sunday (no metter what the weather) from 10am – 1pm at the Boatshed on Princess Royal Drive, Albany.

Albany Boatshed Markets not only feature local growers and producers of fresh and gourmet foods, including the best fish in the Great Southern and Great Southern wines but also talented local artisans showcase their beautiful and distinctive products, such as candles and artwork

There is local live music every week, cooking demonstrations and yummy food and coffee. There is a happy, fun filled, relaxed vibe at these markets and we love spending time here on Sundays when we get the opportunity.

Albany's Beautiful Harbour

The view of our harbour from Marine Drive is stunning.....you can stand at any of the numerous lookouts along the way and be mesmerised by the awesome views.  Next time you are in Albany, take a drive along Marine Terrace from Middleton Beach into Town and stop along the many viewing platforms along the way.

Is quantity more important than quality?

At HideAway Haven we believe guests eat with their eyes.  After a visit to the US recently we discovered that quantity was more important than quality in a lot of places. Here are some random photos taken during our time away.  We did have some real amazing food while we were gone...this is just showcasing some of the bad.
